HUBTEX North America

HUBTEX Maschinenbau GmbH from Fulda, Germany, has integrated the US general importer Design Storage & Handling (DSH) 100 percent into the HUBTEX organization. The resulting subsidiary HUBTEX North America is now responsible for the German company's most important market outside Europe. New Managing Director Alexander Baumann is responsible for North and Central America business. 

For over 30 years, DSH sold the HUBTEX Group’s products in the North and Central American markets with considerable success. The lift truck manufacturer HUBTEX has now acquired all shares in the general importer and will be looking after its North American customers under its own name in the future as HUBTEX North America.

We guarantee users a reliable supply of spare parts, top-quality service, and flawless production processes." says Alexander Baumann

The new Managing Director boasts over 20 years’ experience in industrial truck engineering and picking technology plus extensive technical expertise in HUBTEX’s products.

New depot in California ensures rapid availability

In the USA, HUBTEX aims to further develop the steadily growing market for multidirectional forklifts and special trucks.

This includes opening a new depot on the west coast of America – in California, to be precise – alongside our existing major branches in Ohio and Virginia,"  explains HUBTEX General Manager Hans-Joachim Finger "We’ve already laid the necessary groundwork and increased the size of our demonstration fleet. Establishing a presence in California is just one of the things we’re doing to get closer to our existing customers, learn even more about what they need, and showcase our products to new users too.”
